Using ink sprays 2 ways ~ Mixed media card techniques

     Hello.  Today, on the Unity blog, I am sharing a way of using ink sprays 2 ways for mixed media projects.  These cards use the same ink yet have very different looks.

Using ink sprays 2 ways is so easy to do.  Creating a clean and simple card or a layered mixed media card are just two of many options for ink sprays.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Helpful tips:

Here are helpful tips for using ink sprays 2 ways for two very different card looks.  To begin, trim a large piece of watercolor card stock.  Then, trim and stamp the birthday layer.  Also, stamp, trim and color the gnome panel.  Next. using a craft sheet, protect your craft space from ink sprays.  Then. over a large piece of watercolor paper, spritz two colors over the paper.  I used one shade on each end.  Also, blot any puddles and then heat set completely.  Next, add stenciling over the ink spray panel and let it dry completely. 
For another look, dip the birthday panel into the leftover watercolor that is on the craft sheet.  Use ink smooshing to cover that birthday panel, then dry.  {Also, clean all tools and your craft space from ink and past, before they dry.}  Finally, layer each card, to finish.
